German Man Sentenced for Buying Drugs on the Darkweb


A 20-year-old German man was sentenced to probation after admitting that he had used the darkweb to buy cocaine, marijuana, and a counterfeit 50 euro note. The man reportedly acquired the drugs for his consumption and the counterfeit bill to satisfy his curiosity.

On October 15, the 20-year-old appeared before a judge and jury for sentencing in the District Court of Schwandorf. According to the prosecution, investigations began after customs authorities intercepted a package that carried a counterfeit 50 euro note. The Customs authorities turned the package to the German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA), who immediately initiated investigations.

The investigations and controlled delivery of the package led the police to the 20-year-old’s home. On executing a search warrant on the residence, the investigators were welcomed by a strong cannabis smell. The 20-year-old cooperated and took the investigators to his room and showed them where he had hidden 8.63 grams of cocaine and 45 grams of marijuana. The police seized the drugs and arrested the defendant for further questioning. While in police custody, the defendant reportedly disclosed that in addition to the seized drugs, he had ordered 25 grams of cocaine and 60 grams of cocaine on the dark web.

In his testimony, the 22-year-old told the court he had ordered the drugs for personal use only. He then said he ordered the drugs from the dark web because they were superior to those sold in the streets. He also disclosed that he used a weighing balance to confirm that he received the right quantities of the drugs that he had ordered. The prosecution, through a testifying investigator, told the court that the defendant might have been distributing the drugs. The prosecution was, however, unable to provide evidence to prove that the 20-year-old was reselling the drugs.

The prosecution then told the court that drug tests showed that the defendant is an ecstasy, cocaine, and marijuana user. In response, the defendant told the court that he had stopped using ecstasy and cocaine. He also disclosed that he only smokes marijuana occasionally. Judge Petra Froschauer presiding over the case immediately asked the defendant to stop using marijuana to avoid collisions with law enforcement.

On the counterfeit 50 euro note, the defendant disclosed that he had paid 20 euros to the dark web vendor. He said that he had purchased the note out of curiosity and only wanted to take a look at it once. He also said that he had forgotten about it entirely.

In addition to cooperation with law enforcement and abstaining from cocaine and ecstasy use, the defendant told the court that he had been looking for a job since late August. In the end, the jury sentenced the 20-year-old as a juvenile and handed him a six-month probation sentence. The defendant was also ordered to do 80 hours of community services and ten sessions in a drug rehabilitation center.

20 years old and got sentenced as a juvenile? 6 months probation?!
Damn, that’s incredible. In America he would of probably got some crazy sentence like 25-life, or beheaded.

Good to know some countries are still reasonable when it comes to these things..

Logical, is a naive guy. Why the state will send him to prision, where he will come out as a worse man? As a first offence the sentence is fair. If then he does again, then, prision time.

Mister reasonable

Ye well that’s reasonable, well on the other side why is the government or justice wasting the taxpayers money and time and forces on these stupid childish offenses. Let the kid be for the love of god…

Ducking justice they should fix the problems from the head from the root, imprison themselves…. think about it how come, why do use people drugs? Because we want to escape the invisible prison we live in the endless working to make the boss rich, giving half of my wage to the fucking raping nigger refugees who invades my once beautiful country (dump now). Fuck the system i gonna start selling again!

He got lucky because he was clearly selling dope!

Liberal Germany

And that’s Bavaria where judges typically decide for severe punishments.
Typically w. 8g of cocaine you are even in trouble in Berlin or Hamburg.

Some kind of paradox, you (mister reasonable) are speaking from the shit of our political system, so in logical conclusion from freedom and the right to decide how we want to live and at the same time from“fucking raping nigger refugees“…and you are speaking about tolerance? LMAO Stop taking drugs or selling if the only reason why you are doing it, is because you want to escape the reality or your live… this has nothing to do with using drugs, this is drug abuse.

Germany is No. 4 of the most prosperous countries IN THE WORLD!! We must not let refugees, including children, die in the Mediterranean Sea…That is inhumanity!

Incidentally, human rights are also the idea behind Tor and the Darknet…think about it…

nerbs

@DigitalEmpire: Thanks, I agree to every word you say.

[b] I wonder if this was considered a felonyt type conviction in Germany, in the states it definately would have and wuld have ruined this kids life.. Seems like other countries have more of a grasp of a fare punishment that actually fits the crime, unlike shitty ass america.
